SIGBUS that doesn't go away even after application restart, only after reboot

I've got an application which runs for several hours in the same loop
correctly and then exits with SIGBUS.
If I try to start the application again it immediately exits with SIGBUS and
will not work until rebooted.
If I reboot the system it runs for several hours again.
Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error.
0x401bd354 in memcpy () from /lib/libc.so.6
#0 0x401bd354 in memcpy () from /lib/libc.so.6
#1 0x0000929c in capture_file_write ()
#2 0x0fefeb0a in ?? ()
#3 0x0fefeb0a in ?? ()
Any ideas on what causes this error?
How do I go about finding what #2 and #3 are?
This is the application flow:
count = 0 # this is %d
outfile = /dev/shm/output.%d.dat
data = read logged.dat for 512kb
unlink outfile if exists
truncate outfile to 512kb
outfile_p = mmap outfile
memcpy data outfile_p
count += 1
if count > MAX; count = 0
advance or rewind logged.dat
